Chen, C. Et. Al (2013). The Effects of Extensive Reading via E-Books on Tertiary Level EFL Students’ Reading Attitude, Reading Comprehension and Vocabulary. TOJET: The Turkish Online Journal of Educational Technology, 12(2), 303-313.

The writers investigate the effect of extensive reading from e-book for students’ reading comprehension and vocabulary. Extensive reading or usually called as reading for pleasure is the reading activity which the material is decided by the students. The material is based on their interest. Therefore, the students feel enjoy when reading the book.

In the article, the book that is used by the students is electronic-book (e-book). So, they do not need to have the printed one. They just need a mobile phone or laptop to get the material on the internet.

The findings in the present study provide strong support for the hypothesis that the extensive reading of e-books facilitates Taiwanese tertiary level EFL technological students’ English reading attitude, reading comprehension, and vocabulary growth.
